Check that it is threaded correctly (both top and bottom) making sure that the upper thread is in the takeup lever. Watch the needle as you slowly turn the handwheel counter clockwise (toward you) and the needle point touches the fabric (make sure presser foot is down). Is the thread still relatively taunt? If it is loose, the upper thread tension unit does not have enough tension. Check the areas where the thread goes and make sure you remove any loose threads or fluff which could be inhibiting the tension discs from closing over the thread. If the tension unit still is not tightening enough, the tension unit may need to be replaced or the circuit board replaced. If everything is ok in the upper thread area, now look at the bobbin area. With no fabric, watch as the needle enters the bobbin area. Does it go down and the upper thread catch the bobbin thread and pulls it to the surface? Check for anything preventing the bobbin thread from being pulled up to the surface through the needle plate. If you have still not been able to resolve the problem suggest you take it to an authorized husqvarna viking dealer for service. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

SOURCE: Bobbin Thread is "birdnesting"
Get out the manual and refer to the maintenance section for cleaning the machine.
Especially the bobbin area. You want to make sure the area around the bobbin case is free of lint and thread.
Use a new bobbin and re-thread the machine, with the presser foot UP.
Install a new needle, again according to the directions in the manual. Installed incorrectly can lead to mis-stitching.
If the problem persits, the timing may need adjusting.
This should be done by the sewing machine tech for Kenmore.
Sewusa.com has a guide for this in the repair section, but you could end up with more problems.
